Regulatory and Ethical Tools

ECRIN CAMPUS for Regulatory and Ethical Requirements

ECRIN CAMPUS is a central resource for information about clinical trial regulatory and ethical requirements covering 22 European countries and multiple study types such as clinical drug trials, clinical investigations of medical devices, combination drug-device studies and nutritional studies. Use CAMPUS to locate country-specific competent authorities and ethics committees, consult the summary of requirements for each country, compare country information, and browse related documents (e.g., regulations and guidelines).

All information from the Treat-NMD Regulatory Affairs Database (established by the TREAT-NMD Neuromuscular Network in cooperation with ECRIN) and Medical Device Toolkits (see below) is included in CAMPUS. 


Please note this tool is currently under reconstruction. The information found on this version of the database does not necessarily represent the current status in all countries. 


Regulatory and Ethical Requirements in Medical Device Studies: Toolkits

Country toolkits were prepared as part of the ECRIN-IA project (2012-2015) with country-specific information on regulatory and ethical requirements in medical device studies. You can find the definition and legal basis for medical device studies; information on insurance, sponsors, investigators, competent authorities, ethics committees, data protection, and healthy volunteers/patients; and specific requirements on registries, monitoring and informed consent. (Note: the content of these toolkits has not been updated since project end.)
